    Hey everybody. I Just got some AWESOME aftermarket projector headlights. The problem is that I can't get the damn OEM lights out! I've read all of the previous posts and spent a considerable amount of time under the truck. I've found and removed all of the screws and plastic pins, but i can't seem to get the bottom bolt out - the one that you have to get at from under the truck. I've located it, but no wrench seems to get a good grip on it. What size socket wrench should I use, and do any of you have any helpful suggestions? Thanks so much for the help!

    Look up the BHLM. There's some pretty detailed instructions on how to remove. I remember it being the heardest part, but once you figure it out, it's pretty easy.

    I think the bolt is 13mm but don't quote me. Just try it. :D

    Good luck!

    It's just a 10mm bolt. Use a small ratchet to loosen it until you can do the rest with your fingers.
